Food Fun with Toddlers

Today I had one of those mom moments. I was arranging lunch for my 2 older children, who are 2 and 4. I had the cute Re-Play plates, matching cups, and napkins laid out on the table. I cut their hot dogs and assembled grapes and mac ‘n’ cheese on their plates and greeted them with a smile. Then, it happened. They didn’t eat but more than maybe 3 bites each of their delicious lunch that I prepared all while holding their baby sister. I became frustrated and then turned it into humor and started singing a song about cooking...

Smart Bottoms Dream Diaper Review

With my older two children, my kids’ heavy wetting nighttime diapering needs led me to wool and fitteds, big time. By the time my second son potty trained I had a pretty healthy stash to get rid of. Five years later, and well past my diapering days (or so I thought), we were matched with a beautiful baby boy to adopt and…surprise! We were back in the thick of cloth diapering.I didn’t want to get back into wool again, as the climate we currently live in is much hotter and more humid than where we lived when my older two...

Surviving Difficult Parenting Days

Full disclosure: I have rewritten this post several times. I initially aimed to list practical ways to survive difficult parenting days. You know the ones, when you’re waving the white flag at 7:09 AM or escaping to the garage in tears to eat the rest of the chocolate; when your children decide to surprise you by painting your favorite shoes or your son proudly announces the toilet is clogged (again). When you just need to not be needed another second and you just want a moment of silence.In Loving the Little Years, author Rachel Jankovich talks about her twenty-minute rule....

Is the Pacifier Worth it?

Oh the pacifier, my husband’s and I most beloved/hated thing in our home. I really wanted to avoid using one because it just seemed like too hard of a habit to break and something about the pacifier being in the forefront of all of her milestone pictures was not ideal. When we first met her pediatrician, he was very open and accepting of our wishes as far as her care moving forward; the only thing that he inserted his own personal opinion on was to not offer a pacifier…ever. He had a blatant disdain for them and there we were...

Are They Worth it: Fat Brain Toys

We love our Squigz, and we have all the varieties including mini, pip, benders, and the regular line-up of eight shapes that come in the starter pack. They’ve offered hours upon hours of entertainment over the last two years and still counting. I’ve even used the benders as a hair clip when I couldn’t find mine. Talk about endless, creative use! These silicone marvels can stick, grow tall, wiggle, and never leave a mess behind. They stick firmly when you apply the suction ends to each other or any non-porous surface but even my one-year-old can pull hard enough to...
